I had a hard time initially getting psyched to write about Will Vest. I watched some clips of his 2019 video, flipped over to a SNL sketch where Keenan Thompson is playing Lavar Ball, and naturally ended up spending 15 minutes reading about Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. I learned the city traces back to the 1300s, making it older than waistcoats or whiskey. People loved it so much they couldn’t stop calling it something else.
What does this have to do with Mr. Vest? Absolutely nothing. But I didn’t watch The Simpsons growing up so I needed a buffer paragraph where site chief and casual-referencer-of-blue-period-minimalist-artists Kate Preusser assumed I had a sophisticated alternative intro to one that referenced the graphics she requested.
